Free Wi-Fi at Newtown Library

'cbdfree' is Wellington's free wi-fi network, and is now up and running in Newtown at the Library & Zoo. To connect, you'll need a wireless-capable device. Most smartphones, tablets and laptops are able to connect to the new network (look for 'cbdfree' in your list of available wifi networks on your device). If you experience any issues connecting, more information is available at www.cbdfree.co.nz.
Please note: printing facilities from the wi-fi network are not available.
